I asked if the story will be an Elseworlds story or fall in the DCU proper. It will NOT be an Elseworlds story, but don't look for any references about the event in any DC books, besides a very small few, IF that. No MK characters will ever show up in any other DC books, EVER. He said there will not be an issue of Batman with flashbacks on the event or Batman discussing what happened with Robin.Check out the rest of the report and then visit our our Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe GameRealm, featuring an in-depth interview with Ed Boon and the original full theatrical trailer available in 720p HD.
Robin? So he is in the game? I get a big *smirk* and Yes. Add Robin to the list. I then of course asked, which one? Tim Drake? Dick Grayson? Jason Todd? Stephanie Brown? He said the story will take place in the present. So Tim Drake? And he confirmed with a head nod.
I must have named off every MK character and DC character that came to mind to see if he would let me know who else. He said a few are quite obvious on both ends and confirmed the following: Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern (didn't say which GL or Flash but said that doesn't mean there is only one of each in the game) Black Canary, Hawkman and Powergirl.

As for the "Approximately 20 characters total, this could change", I don't buy that at this point. Esp. from the conversation I had. That "fact" said it could change, I'm pretty sure there will be more then 10-11 per side. At this point, my guess is at 14-20 per side if they wanna ramp up the fun factor. With so many to choose from, both sides, why limite it to 10 each. Thats lame. Every interview has stated the it will be the most obvious choices, so they will go with the characters everyone knows first and works good in the game. As much as I wanna see Booster Gold, Animal Man, Cyborg, Adam Strange, we prolly won't get those characters. But I'm sure there will be at least 1 or 2 surprises in there for us. And Villains? Hmm..I should have followed up on the "well represented" answer. As that could mean, MULTIPLE villains or just the main, well known ones being represented. Not many fans outside of comics know more then the main DCU villains - Joker, Lex and the majority of Batman's rouges gallery. Just including some from Batman and Superman's rouges would awesome, but I would think they wanna represent the DCU more, so my guesses would prolly be (and ones that might work good in the game) Lex (in his armor) Joker Deathstroke Circe and/or Cheetah (have to have a good female ratio) Amazo Sinestro Dr Light I just hope charcater slots are wasted on 2 different versions of Green Lantern or Flash, since it seems an easy way for Boon "pallet swap" it up and take the easy way with a few additions. If this was a DC ONLY fighting game, I wouldn't mind that. I wish Midway would have done that first, THEN the crossover. I hope at least 1 DCU fighting game is coming from Midway.
I find this "source"'s info questionable. If indeed there will only be 10-11 characters per side, and tall those DC characters are included, AND there will be ample representation of evil characters, then it looks like we've run out of room. .

I said the SOURCE might be misinformed. The guy you got the info from not you. As for revelations on the roster size being "subject to change" I coulnd't be happier. I always said 24 (12 a side) was a good number but bigger is by no means a bad thing. I just hope Boon sticks with his original statement saying he wants to make each character as good as possible and not just stack the roster with alot of characters that suck. I'm paraphrasing of course but he said something to that effect when asked about the roster in an interview.
...I'm not saying Trash-MKX is lying, I'm just saying the source might not have his facts straight.

Everest. ¬_¬' But yes, SG would have made much more sense, but perhaps they didn't two people of practically the same powers and overly powerful race in.
I don't even like Powergirl very much. Why not just have Supergirl? Or Zatanna? She's dressed like a magician's assistant, totally skimpy.
